Well, we're finally down to just 2 days and a few hours until 1 Southwest Airlines flight takes off from the snowy confines of Kansas City International Airport bound for Las Vegas. There will be four of us making the journey, and only two of us have been before. My sister and her husband will be making their first trip ever, while I'll be putting the 2nd stamp in to my Vegas passport. My mom is a Vegas vet, having been many times. At this time, my mom and brother in law both think I'm crazy because of how hyped up I've been over the last 50+ days, but my sister understands completely. We both grew up listening to verbal "Trip Reports" from our parents and grandparents. I've had numerous souviners <sp?> brought back to me throughout the years, and I'm happy to say that I will be sporting a "vintage" hot pink "flip up" hat from Circus Circus (which my grandpa and grandma gave me about 14 years ago) when we check in to said hotel. We'll be arriving around noon on the 29th, and will be leaving early on the 2nd. The "to do" list that I have in my mind is fairly extensive, although I know there is no way we'll get to it all. In no particular, here are some of the things we're planning. *Shrimp Cocktails at the Golden Gate *The Grain-Train at Le-whatever it is *Craps at Main St. Station *Sunspots at Plaza *Hitting the El Cortez just for giggles *Poker at either the Excalibur or Luxor (yes, my brother in law and I are relative rookies) *Majestic Lions slots at MGM *Hitting some of the off-strip properties like the Rio, Hard Rock, and Palms, and maybe the Orleans *Getting dropped off at the south end of the strip and walking our way back up to Circus Circus, hitting as many casinos as we can along the way. *Breakfast at the Peppermill *Steak specials at Mr. Lucky's 24/7 and Ellis Island *Riding the Big Shot and X-Scream at the Stratosphere . I'm sure I'm leaving all sorts of things out, but the biggest to-do for all of us, is having fun. I'm sure that we won't have any problems with that.
